Abstract oil paintings feature figures made of geometric shapes

Vibrant colors and geometric shapes converge in the abstract art of Georgy Kurasov. The sculptor-turned-painter channels his interest in depicting human figures with a preference for the unorthodox style of neo-constructivism, an approach that emphasizes intersecting lines and freedom of expression. This combination results in kaleidoscopic canvases dominated by remarkable characters and surreal backgrounds.

Kurasov distorts the bodies of both men and women to extreme proportions, from the extreme point of the wrist to the exaggeration of shoulders and faces. These stylistic choices serve not only to transform the human figure, but also to merge these people with their distorted surroundings. For example, shots created by a person’s arm may lead to a line extending in the same direction in the background. Kurasov would repeat this process multiple times – creating multiple intersections between the setting and the figures – which in turn results in a flattened sense of perspective and a surreal sense of space.

Not to be outdone by the intensity of this abstract style, Kurasov’s paintings also demonstrate an interest in fashion. Some of its most eye-catching female figures are dressed in glamorous evening wear reminiscent of the Art Deco aesthetic of the 1920s. Similarly, the men are dressed in formal suits with an unmistakable vintage style. United by the same saturated color palette, these bright garments coordinate perfectly with the reverie of these urban environments.
